Item #: BQ2848 -- A 19th Century Sheffield Bowie Knife with Original Sheath -- $440.00
A fine original 19th century Bowie with blade maker stamped, "ALFRED WILLIAMS, SHEFFIELD, ENGLAND." The stag antler grips are outstanding and the original leather sheath fits the knife perfectly. Very fine original condition with full blade that displays slight sharpening and cleaning. The grips and tang also have a fine age patina. The sheath is a little misshapen at the base, with a minor cut from blade insertion along the top edge and the reverse hanger lacks its stitching at the top. It is rare to find these Bowies accompanied by their original sheaths. 25.5 cm. overall. In sheath, 14.9 cm. blade.
